    Ian Hamilton Finlay, tree plaque, 1991, carved by Nicholas Sloan for Stockwood Park, Luton.

    During the 1970s and 1980s the poet, sculptor and landscape gardener Ian Hamilton Finlay provided a mass of work for the stone carvers and letter cutters. Michael Harvey in particular carved inscriptions for Hamilton Finlay’s classicising garden at Stonypath in Lanarkshire. Anyone who worked with Hamilton Finlay was introduced to a wayward intelligence and became part-creator of some of the most remarkable site-specific work of the post-war period.

    VANACULAR

    A project for the 55th Venice Biennale
    Opening 28 May 2013, 6:00pm
    Exhibition runs from 29 May to 24 November 2013
    Curated by James Putnam and Fiona Biggiero
    Ass. Curator Vassiliki Tzanakou

    On the occasion of the 55th Venice Biennale, the Gervasuti Foundation is proud to present Vanacular, a site-specific project by British artist Gavin Turk. This installation is comprised of a selection of works based on the artist’s ongoing Transit Disaster series. The title is a pun on ‘van’ and ‘vernacular’, a metaphor implying the social connotations that the iconic white Ford van of the ‘90s represents in British society and a paradoxical play on the Venetian urban context, a city without roads. Vanacular reconfigures a language of identity between that which is considered an accident of fate and that which is invested with intent, both in art and in life.

    Turk often recycles famous art historical imagery in order to make contemporary societal correlations. Vanacular revives the classic pop-art technique of silk-screen-on-canvas while referencing the works of its most celebrated exponents Andy Warhol and Robert Raushenberg with his 18 metre long Currents (1970).
